Fluffy's temperature was so low the staff couldn't even measure it on their thermometer.

The cat gained consciousness at the clinic that afternoon, but the veterinarians still sent Fluffy to an emergency clinic because her temperature remained extremely low, according to Clark.

The clinic shared Fluffy's tale in a Facebook post earlier this week.

The cat's owners said they came home to find Fluffy in a hard-packed snowbank, as though the animal had been sitting in one spot for a long time while the blowing snow drifted up around it.

Clark his associate, Dr. China Corum, used heating pads and heated cages to help stimulate Fluffy. A normal temperature for a cat is around 100°-102°F.

Earlier this week, White had said the winners of the Whittaker-Gastelum and Adesanya-Silva fights would meet later this year. In the co-main event Israel Adesanya looks to collect even more hype by finishing Anderson "The Spider" Silva.

"And finally, we put her in a heated kennel".

"We immediately began to warm her up", Dutter said.

Dutter told TODAY, "Dr. Clark has not seen this happen in his 20 years of practicing".

Fluffy is one lucky feline.

Fluffy's experience highlights "the importance for pet owners to keep an eye on their pets, their shelter, and their water, and to have a place for them to be safe", Dutter said.

Extreme cold weather is not only risky for people but for animals as well.

When she got to the clinic, her temperature was below 90°F, said Dr. Jevon Clark.
